Friday The 13th Conversation

Boo. How are you. Rain is back here but only off and on. How are things where you are?

Plans for tonight and the weekend? Supper for me is mystery at this point.

Daylight savings time- love it or hate it? This time was really the first time I felt like in some sort of twilight zone for a few days. Remington loves it as it means more outside time.

Generally this time of year things slow down as daylight and better weather grow. And we take a break with occasional FNC around things like 4th orf July and pick back up when we fall back/ holidays. But not this year.

The conversation and general nonsense will continue. We need that. There is a good thread on the virus for all those things. Some may have more down time, or need more lifting up. Or need distractions or humor. I kinda flip back and forth during the day at level or concern.

Whatever comes, comes. We will face together.

When you fry baloney do you cut in half and make the little cut or just throw in whole. I have seen on shows like Diners Drive Ins and Dives people smoke it. Never had that.

As always anything and everything welcome.

@aubie , this is the time of year we ask you not to suspend Friday night conversation They have definitely been lively as of late and it's nice to feel a connection. Especially if we all end up locked in our houses, twiddling our thumbs.

Dinner tonight, I think we are going out to a favorite pizza place. We're going to try to do errands/grocery shopping this afternoon so we have all day tomorrow free for renovation work we're doing around the house. Wallpaper stripping, floor refinishing, etc. Not glamorous renovation work but the necessary stuff to get to the stuff that's more fun next week (new countertops being installed, new appliances in place, etc.).

Speaking of not glamorous, our paddocks are finally melting so poo scooping continues for me this weekend. Unfortunately the weather is still all over the place- pouring rain right now but temps dropping back below freezing overnight during the weekend, so that complicates clearing the paddocks. Still have the snow blower attachment on the tractor, just in case, so that means I am stuck with the old fashioned method of a pitchfork, shovel, and wheelbarrow for spring clean up. The roads are a mess so I will probably handwalk Fizz but not ride yet. Next weekend is my target for getting back in the saddle- have been talking with my riding buddy all week about our riding goals this season. We are aiming to log 500 miles together and I think we can do it!

Today rain returned...I can deal with it but don't like it!

Having a harder time with this time change than usual...hard getting up on time, which is strange because I am often awake earlier...oh well.

Fried bologna, not today but I often make a slit in it. The fatty thick kind is the best, can get a nice brown on it. Yummy.

But not today. Today is meatless, so started out with a protein shake. will skip lunch and have a nice salad for dinner. Salad with fresh tomatoes and some feta cheese. Have some asparagus too, so might make that with a bit of cheese or cream sauce. Or just butter! Like my asparagus with butter and salt. Yummy.

We are having a big tack sale tomorrow at the local TSC. Hoping it doesn't rain and I can sell some stuff. Need $$$ as I am broke. Going to be doing a little tack cleaning today. Will load up the truck in the am as sale doesn't start until 10 am.

I'm one of the few who hate daylight savings time because I ride early in the morning. It is now dark at 7:00 a.m., and I have to start out on a road with a 60 mph speed limit. It's better when I can start riding at 6:30 or 6:45. That will be in a month or two.

For supper, I am having a Nutrisystem shake. I've lost 10 pounds that way. yay!

Tomorrow I can hardly wait! I am riding in field trials. My next door neighbor is one of the dog trainers. Field trials are tests for quail dogs. They are similar to fox hunts, but slower, calmer, no jumps. It's really fun to watch the dogs work. The dogs are mostly English shorthair pointers. Two dogs go out for 45 minutes to see how many quail they can flush. There is a judge for each dog. Then they have a short break and release two more dogs. All the horses are gaited, mostly TN Walkers, and we gait along right quick, cantering at times. There are very few women involved in field trials. I am often the only female in the gallery.

Here are some photos of past field trials.

Trying to mop up the mess I caused!

@aubie - I'd definitely miss the connection if the thread stopped.

It's sunny and chilly today, which is an improvement from the extremely heavy hail showers we had on Wednesday and Thursday.

We haven't had our time change yet. Ours is at the end of the month. It takes me a little time to get used to the difference but i much prefer the extra daylight in the morning.

Tonight's supper is fish. I bought some fresh this morning, not long after it came in from the east coast fishing port. I think i'll make some fries/chips to go with it. Lunch was a salad and i've snacked on celery, an apples and pear this afternoon.

I worked from home today and made a quick dash to the supermarket before lunch to see what was available. Their shelves were worryingly empty, which means that tomorrow may be spent going further afield to source items for myself, my elderly mum and friend.

I am another one who rides early in the morning. I'm back to getting out to the barn when it's still dark. Extra daylight in the evenings just makes me stay up later, but I still have to get up at the same abysmally early time of morning every weekday morning, because of my daughter's school. So I lose an hour of sleep every night. Bleah. I'm looking forward to spring break, and possibly an extended spring break, where I don't have to get up quite so early every morning.

WRT to your question @aubie , baloney is icky! I didn't even like it back when I was a kid. Does frying it make it palatable?
